Through various requests from learners, it became obvious that there was a desire in many of our special learners to give back to the community in one way or another. Various ways of serving create an atmosphere of fellowship and kindness at Eunice.
5 service initiatives were launched in the third term in 2015; learners involve themselves in these service activities for the duration of the project.
Six opportunities for services are managed by the school..
The collection of bread-tags-for-wheel-chairs has been going on for a couple of years, especially amongst Grade 8 learners, with Mrs H Steyn motivating learners to bring the tags to school.
Nadine Terblanche introduced the “Goodwool” project, motivating all learners and teachers to join in the knitting or crocheting of blocks in order to make blankets for the less privileged, as well as for the Mandela project. Everyone who would like to learn this skill, can do so during break in the colder terms
This year 30 completed blankets were handed to children at “For Our Children Orphanage”.
Bernelee Kritzinger launched the “Green Heart” outreach. The main focus here is to help the less privileged, especially children. There are a number of learners who volunteered to help by visiting and playing with these children or orphans. In 2016 Dani Gomes continued the project by involving learners to “adopt-a-granny” at Westerbloem Retirement Village.
During the past year we had an average of between 30 – 40 learners donating blood at each occasion.
We managed to collect more than 3 completely filled garbage size bags with soft toys, as well as a cash donation of r 4 531 for the Elanya Children’s Initiative in the fourth term.
In term3 learners donated enough money through the Ignite Your Femininity Project to ensure 25 new mothers a gift bag with essentials like nappies and babygrows for newborn babies.
The Crazy Hair Day during the Second term raised funds of R 6 000 for CHOC house.
